On behalf of UT, the University Libraries became members of the Open Textbook Network (OTN) in 2016. As part of our membership, OTN will present an open textbook workshop on campus. Instructors concerned about the impact of high textbook costs on students may apply to attend the workshop, sponsored by the UT Libraries and led by speakers from the OTN, including David Ernst (PhD, CIO for the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota, and Executive Director of the Open Textbook Network). If selected, instructors will receive a $200 stipend in return for their time, participation, and a post-workshop written review of an open textbook.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 19, 2:30-4:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Hodges Library 128
APPLICATION DEADLINE: April 5
